"Independent World Report" - a new magazine for international stories not getting coverage elsewhere

Edited on Wed Sep-30-09 10:54 AM by muriel_volestrangler
Independent World Report is a global briefing on human rights, international politics, peace and justice – a newsmagazine that celebrates freedom and liberty. We aim to highlight the forgotten and untold stories of the world, sketching faces for the faceless and giving voices to the unheard. We call this journalism for humanity. We are supported by our readers alone through yearly subscriptions. We do not accept any paid advertisement; government or corporate funding. We are an internationalist magazine free from any ideological, political or geographical bias. /

In the first issue:

The last colony: In the occupied zones of Western Sahara, Morocco confines thousands of Sahrawi people in an open prison where they can just helplessly watch their country being plundered. Peaceful demonstrations against the occupation are ruthlessly suppressed with arbitrary arrests, ill-treatment, torture and indefinite imprisonment without any trial.


Ambassador of conscience: Shafiur Rahman interviews Craig Murray, former British diplomat who blew the whistle on torture and rendition.


Blood cotton: Tasneem Khalil reports on forced child labour in Uzbekistan.


Chinese apartheid: Wasfia Nazreen interviews Rebiya Kadeer of World Uyghur Congress.


Lost childhood: Amila Jašarević reports on children in Danish asylum centres. /

I found this via Ophelia Benson, who has written an essay for it: "The God who hates women", and who runs the excellent / website. I thought it looks as if it would interest many DUers.

The editor is a Bangladeshi journalist who was arrested and tortured by the military regime, and who is now in political asylum in Sweden.
